Hi all, I have 2 switches connected , by 2 different l3 interfaces, so they are both successors and load balancing, how would I make one of the routes to become feasible successor? the interfaces are normal fastethernet.

Hello Carl,

if you want to make one link less preferred then the other one


check current delay with


sh int fx/y


then use

int fx/y

delay xxx


use a greater value then the default one.


method2:

more selective using offset-list applied under router eigrp process

using this you can make one path less preferred only for specific route(s)


Hope to help

Giuseppe

Hello Carl,


may you post


sh ip eigrp topology


! let me use placeholders names for the

! two lan interfaces


sh int f0/0

sh int f0/1


sh ip eigrp int f0/0

sh ip eigrp int f0/1


all of these commands on the local router that sees the two equal cost paths


Hope to help

Giuseppe
